Editorial Reviews
“This is an affordable, useful addition to the veterinary acid-base literature and could be used by students or practitioners of veterinary medicine or veterinary technology…The book is written by veterinary technicians for veterinary technicians. It is of high quality and moderate complexity…The editors are to be commended for including a chapter on the strong ion approach to acid-base in veterinary patients. This feature is still lacking in many books, despite the wide scientific acceptance of the strong ion approach. It is often omitted for its mathematical complexity and potential lack of utility, but the author of that chapter does a good job of explaining the easy utility of strong ion difference clinically even if the total strong ion approach remains out of reach practically.” (Doody Enterprises 17/03/2017)
“Too often, veterinarians expect the veterinary technicians working alongside them to aid in patient care without a complete understanding of the complex pathophysiology of the disease or condition that is affecting the patient. Acid-Base and Electrolyte Handbook for Veterinary Technicians aims to correct this deficiency and hits the mark with only a few caveats”…..”This book provides readers the information necessary to achieve that level of understanding. This slim and fairly priced book is perfect for experienced technicians working in a specialty practice, especially an intensive care unit or emergency service, or those seeking specialty certification who want a better understanding of acid-base and electrolyte disorders”……”it is an excellent reference for experienced technicians who wish to expand their knowledge and understanding of common acid-base and electrolyte disturbances” (Reviewed by Anthony Johnson, DVM, DACVECC, Veterinary Information Network, Davis, Calif 15th June 2017 AVMA)
